  • 640 x 480 / 480 x 640 OR 800 x 600 /600 x 800
  • They can be done on any medium.
  • If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.

  • The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
  • The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.
  • Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
  • Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.

Hello everyone, couldn’t think of anything special today , all the good ideas were stolen:) so I bring you a simple devil,

45 min , wacom, PS


This one was a real challenge for me because I suck at backgrounds… …I just can’t picture their elements the way I can those of figures or vehicles.

Made with Painter 7, as always, and took about an hour to complete (dang I’m slow!)


Ok… i took “storm” literally… here’s the fireSTORM :smiley:

PS CS w/ tablet… 20-25 min.

Enjoy! :slight_smile:


Drumwhore - that’s out of this world. If you’d be so kind, what brushes did you use?

Dargon - Great silohette (oh man, definitely can’t spell that word), love it

Mathew_er - nice first post, love the look of the flame

acc9340 - welcome to CGTalk! (I haven’t seen your previous 4 posts). I’m actually from Ithaca. Cold, rainy, wet, miserable Upstate New York - represent.

1 Hour in PS w/ WACOM - about forty minutes spent on that little guy, still doesn’t look the way I want him to, the jerk.


Russell_Collins- nice work for not having much experience with backgrounds. This forum is a great way to improve on such things!


lol, i must have a terrible dirty mind… the first thing that came to mind for both of the sketches ive done have been like rated R; anywho, here’s the second sketch:

lol, 15 mins, photoshop… i dont even know if i actually tried on that one! :smiley:
